Wade, J. H. (2010). The procedural evolution of conflict towards litigation and implications for legal publishers. Keynote paper presented at the CCH conference on the future of legal publishing, Sydney, Australia.

© Copyright John Wade, 2010


This paper will summarise three topics found repetitively in the research of Professor Marc Galanter, namely –
• The pyramids of conflict
• The decline of “full-blown” trials
• The increase of “law”
The goal is to promote brainstorming about the consequences of these analyses for legal publishers.
